EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — A New York man has been accused of breaking into Sean “Diddy” Combs’s East Hampton mansion, where he apparently he ate food, drank liquor and wore the rap mogul’s clothes.
The New York Post reports Quamine Taylor of Queens was arrested at the sprawling home on April 1. He’s being held in the Suffolk County Jail on trespassing and petit larceny charges. The unemployed 30-year-old has not posted $2,000 bail.
“I’ve actually been going to the house from time to time since 2001,” Taylor told The Post yesterday at the Suffolk County Jail.
“I stay there a lot, but Sean gets funny sometimes about me staying there,” Taylor said.
In his first break-in, Taylor tried to pass himself off as Combs’ cousin when cops found him intoxicated after he took a dip in Combs’ pool.
This time, Taylor spun a story that he was a close personal friend and even convinced a security detail of the lie when he accidentally tripped an alarm in the mansion
East Hampton Town Police say they were called to the house after a caretaker found Taylor inside.
A police spokesman didn’t immediately return a call on Friday.
In 2010, a Florida woman claiming to be Combs’ wife was arrested in East Hampton. Authorities said she was found twice at a home she mistakenly thought was owned by Combs.
